Church Bells

St Lawrence has a dedicated Band of Ringers for its 8 bells and ring before the 10.30am service as well as for most Weddings and occasional Funerals when booked. The Bells are also rung to commemorate significant events both locally and nationally. Practice sessions are held on Tuesday and Friday evenings and new ringers are always welcome.

Bell ringing is GREAT FUN!

A unique hobby for whole families from 9 – 90

Very sociable group participation — you’ll make friends for life

A craft almost 400 years old practised throughout the British Isles and in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Southern Africa and the USA — plenty of scope for travel !

Service to the Church — you will soon be able to make an important contribution

Lots of brainwork if you like it — but this is optional

Healthy light exercise — you don’t need to be big and strong

It helps if you have a sense of rhythm and reasonable co-ordination — you don’t have to be a musician

At other times, we have to keep the Church locked, and use a different entrance. To gain access, please ring the following number:
